May Arts and Faber Castell Week

This week, the May Arts Ribbonistas are hopping with Faber Castell - and have so many great projects to share with you!  Be sure to stop by the May Arts Blog to see the goodies that the Ribbon Lady will be giving away for this hop (a wonderful selection of May Arts Ribbons and Faber Castell products!)

Since I used quite a few mixed media techniques for my Halloween card, I thought it would be easier to share a video with you, rather than having such a long blog post! I hope you enjoy it and will try some of the techniques out yourself.
